Hokkaido Ice Cream in Tokyo

Hello all,

I am looking for good Hokkaido ice cream in Tokyo if this exists. We will be staying near Tokyo Station but willing to travel.

Thanks in advance

  1. Your best bets are the regional satellite shops in the Ginza area - as far as I know, most of them are shipping milk daily from Hokkaido, Iwate etc, pouring straight into the hopper and selling the output on a cone. Excellent stuff and usually in operation all year round, unlike other soft-serve vendors.

    I'll try to insert some links but otherwise googling 'satellite shops Ginza' will bring them up.

    1. Try the Hokkaido goods store across the street from Tokyo Station (Yaesu South side). I know they have ice cream, but don't remember much more than that.

        There's one Hokkaido shop across from Tokyo station and another across from Yurakucho station: http://bento.com/m/e/dbinx/ir-antenna...

          The one by Yurakucho certainly has Hokkaido soft serve. It's not very good, but don't tell anyone.
